tsunami on Slieve Corragh, 2004

Not a particularly inspiring climb on its own. Went up today from the Trassey Track and following the wall from Hares Gap took in Slievenaglogh, Slieve Corragh en route to Slieve Commedagh before returning to Hares Gap via the Brandy Pad. It does however give an opportunity for great views along the Ben Crom Reservoir and towards Bearnagh and Doan. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/212/comment/1028/
